Meet an eco-farmer GOING GREENERAN EASTER BANQUET Seasonal menusOur new campaign KEEP BRITAIN FARMING(PHOTOGRAPH BY ALUN CALLENDER)There’s been a bit of window dressing going on at the Country Living offices. Having decided we needed a refresh, the whole team began thinking about what we could do differently while still bringing you the same unique mix of content – from soft furnishings to hard issues – that makes Country Living so special. You’ll see that old favourites are still here but approached differently, and that there are new elements, too. Then we set our hugely talented creative director, Lindsey Jordan, the task of giving the magazine a new look. I am thrilled with the results – I hope you are, too.FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM FOR PHOTOS AND VIDEOS @COUNTRYLIVINGUKDISCOVER THE LATEST…

A field of lambs is the first true sign of springA SIGHT TO SAVOUROne of the most joyous months of the year, April marks the true beginning of spring, full of new life, fresh green smells and, if we’re lucky, the first proper sunshine since autumn. Before you know it, the shoots that crept through tentatively in March will burst forth and the fields then fill with lambs.DON’T MISS!GLOUCESTERSHIRE’S ‘GOLDEN TRIANGLE’In the early 20th century, the borderlands between Gloucestershire and Herefordshire became known as the ‘Golden Triangle’, due to the swathes of wild daffodils that thrive there.

WEEKENDERSGlastonburySOMERSETAs a place of Christian pilgrimage and the New Age centre of the UK, Glastonbury is a unique blend of myth, legend and modern interpretation. Forget the music festival synonymous with it – that happens less than once a year and six miles away; the rest of the time, this tiny West Country town goes about its quiet, quirky business with a charm heightened by the coming of spring.WHAT TO SEE The ancient Celtic festival of Beltane marks the beginning of summer, and Glastonbury’s celebrations start on 30 April with music and performances in the town.

tales from the blacksmith’s cottage

(ILLUSTRATION BY CLARE MELINSKY)“One of my pigs has died,” says my father, and looks very sad. This is surprising. Firstly because he always brought us up with a very matter-of-fact attitude to death (it’s closer in the countryside than it is in town; you can hardly take a walk without finding some poor dead thing pinned to a wire fence), but also because:“You don’t have any pigs,” I point out.“Not one of your pigs!” cries Mama, like it’s catching.“One of the pigs I feed when I’m walking Eric,” he explains to me, mournfully. “It’s awfully sad.”I suspect that the loss of the pig is all the more poignant because – if the grand moving plan finally gets off the ground – my parents will soon be leaving all livestock and…
